Let’s Refactor That Sass
Sass is a powerful pre-processor. That’s a given. Since it’s release Sass has helped designers and front-end developer’s create more modular stylesheets. But it’s so much more than just variables and nested selectors. By using functions, mixins, and yes, even extends, we can write powerful design architectures in less code and better prepare our systems for future feature development.
Let’s take advantage of all that Sass provides us. Over the years, I’ve seen—and made—many common mistakes in Sass that could be cleaned up with some refactoring. “Let’s refactor that Sass” is a phrase my co-workers are sick of hearing. But, it’s something I find myself saying on a daily basis. And something, hopefully, you’ll be saying too.
